Home Sports NEW GPC INC plugs $100,000 To GCF Online Chess Education programme
The Guyana Chess Federation is elated to announce the receipt of further financial support towards its online programme for teaching chess to young Guyanese.
The NEW GPC INC has donated Gy$100,000 for the purchase of premium “gold” licences on Chesskid.com, the online platform used by the GCF to introduce young players to the game of chess, and also for them to access the numerous chess lessons and puzzles. With this donation, 31 children would have access to Chesskid.com for free in 2022.
Gold membership on the Chesskid.com platform allows children opportunity to access an unlimited number of puzzles, tactical exercises, challenges, educational videos and lessons, among other learning resources. Young chess players would have the opportunity to learn and play online chess with their peers as well as with players from around the globe.
This support would be especially invaluable since the Guyana Chess Federation has seen its membership tripled over the last 3 months, as the Chess in Schools’ programme continues to expand.
Also, as the sport begins to venture out of Georgetown, there are plans to take chess into Linden and Essequibo in the coming months.
The NEW GPC INC is a top local manufacturer and distributor of pharmaceutical products in Guyana. The company’s roots date back all the way to the 1920s.
The GCF wishes to thank the NEW GPC INC for its generous contribution towards development of chess in Guyana.
